JUNEAU (AP) -- Sealaska Heritage Institute will host its 2002 Native Alaskan cultural festival on June 6-8, the organization announced.

The biennial festival of Native Alaskan art, history, dance and culture, called Celebration, drew more than 5,000 people to Juneau last year, the organization said.

About 1,800 dancers from Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, and the Lower 48 are expected to attend Celebration 2002 along with 40 Native artists who will be featured.

The event will focus on clan-owned ceremonial objects, crests, stories and songs, Sealaska said.
